Justin Sheedy lives in Sydney where he enjoys in-store signing events for his books, doing radio and press interviews re his writing, also guest author appearances at writers’ festivals around Australia. He is delighted to announce (dream come true) that his historical fiction trilogy has just been picked up by New Holland Publishing, with Books 1-3 to be republished in early 2019 and Book 4 in the series, Ghosts of the Future, to be published in October 2019.
Justin had his first book, Goodbye Crackernight, published in 2009. A laugh-out-loud nostalgic portrait of childhood in 1970s Australia, Goodbye Crackernight was so warmly received by Australian readers that it secured Justin a place on the program of the prestigious Byron Bay Writers’ Festival 2010. Justin’s second book, Nor the Years Condemn, published in 2011, saw him invited to the Gloucester Writers’ Festival 2012, due to popular demand Book 2 in the trilogy, Ghosts of the Empire, being published in 2013. Justin’s long-awaited sequel to Goodbye Crackernight was published in 2014, Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer being received with rave reviews. 2016 saw the launch of Book 3 in Justin’s WWII trilogy, No Greater Love, seven sell-out book-signings in a year at Australia’s premier bookstore, Dymocks Sydney, and his appearance as a guest author at Queensland’s WriteFest 2016. 2017 saw No Greater Love achieve best-seller status at Dymocks Sydney and Justin’s highly successful appearance as a guest author at Melbourne’s Historical Novel Society Australasia 2017 Conference. Justin closed that stellar year with no less than 6 Christmas book signings.
